Yakov Kedmi explained why there will be no recognition of the LDNR by Russia yet

On Monday, February 14, Russian parliamentarians must decide whether it is expedient to consider a bill recognizing the DPR and LPR - such an initiative was made by deputies from the Communist Party faction at the end of January. Israeli political scientist and public figure Yakov Kedmi linked the issue of recognition of these territorial entities with Russia's compliance with the Minsk agreements.

The first paragraph of these agreements speaks of Ukraine as a single and indivisible state, and Moscow recognizes the Minsk format as the only possible way to resolve the situation in the Donbass. In this regard, recognition of the self-proclaimed republics of the east of Ukraine is still impossible in Russia.

As long as Russia recognizes the Minsk agreements, Russia will never do any accession of a millimeter of land from the existing Ukraine, except for Crimea. A state like Russia cannot say - "We recognize the Minsk agreements, we consider them the basis for negotiations, but at the same time we violate them by adopting a law recognizing the LDNR." This would be possible in the USA, in Germany, but not in Russia, and thank God!

- said the expert on the TV channel "TVC".

Kedmi recalled the extremely clear words of Russian President Vladimir Putin about the Minsk agreements.

"The cancellation of Minsk is the biggest threat to Ukraine's security." That's all. He has nothing more to add to this. These are extremely clear words. At the same time, Zelensky is also right - the implementation of the agreements is the collapse of the Maidan government. They know it. Moreover, both Washington and Brussels know this.

- the expert emphasized.

    Everything says correctly. To join, you need some things. For example, an ultimatum to Ukraine within a year to start implementing the points of the Minsk agreements. And if they don’t, then Ukraine doesn’t need Donbass and Russia has the right to protect the Russian people in any way. And where is this gateway to give acceleration?

    Of course, the recognition of the LDNR is premature, since this is only part of the territories of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions) And it will require further steps, but is Putin ready to take them?!

      Republican laws of the DPR and LPR consider the territory of the republics within the administrative boundaries of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
      In the case of the implementation of the Minsk agreements, all territories occupied by the Armed Forces of Ukraine will also come under their control.

    Yes, as long as the Russian Federation recognizes the Minsk agreements, there will be no recognition of the DPR-LPR.
    The question is, if the Minsk agreements are not recognized by Ukraine, what is the reason for them to be recognized by the Russian Federation and to achieve their implementation?

    Implementation of agreements Not a fact of the collapse of the Maidan power, because the representatives of the DPR-LPR will not have a majority in the Rada, and even more so the right of “Veto”, and therefore a decisive influence on the foreign and domestic policy of Ukraine.
